En­gine prob­lems dis­rupt cross­ings

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

YAR­MOUTH — A spokesper­son for Bay Fer­ries says en­gine man­u­fac­turer MTU “re­sponded im­me­di­ately and has been work­ing dili­gently” with the com­pany to as­sess a prob­lem with one of the four main en­gines of the Cat ferry, and to iden­tify op­tions to get the en­gine back into work­ing or­der.

“On June 28, Bay Fer­ries crew iden­ti­fied a fail­ure in the Cat’s star­board outer main en­gine,” said Rhonda Lat­ter, man­ager, hu­man re­sources and cor­po­rate ser­vices. “At this point, we don’t ex­pect to have ad­di­tional de­tails in terms of the re­pair time­frame un­til later in the week. In the mean­time, the Cat con­tin­ues to serve our passengers safely on a mod­i­fied sched­ule be­tween Port­land, Maine, and Yar­mouth, Nova Sco­tia,” she said.
